Get excited–I’m ahead of schedule with my boot camp homework this week :-).
I have another another high intensity interval workout for you. You’ll definitely burn some serious calories with this one. You can scale it to your current fitness level. Newbies, take it easy and go for one round or two. Folks who have been exercising for awhile–crank out 3 or 4 rounds. As always, please do a 3-5 minute warm up before you start any of my high intensity workouts.
This is homework for Almaden bootcamp participants, participants in both Campbell boot camps AND my in-home personal training clients. I should have customers in Campbell, San Jose, Cupertino, Los Altos and Saratoga doing my workouts this week without me there (gee, I feel so powerful).
It’s a little scary how I sometimes get rather excited about workouts, isn’t it? The reason: combined with supportive nutrition, they make you look better and feel better. When you look and feel better, life is just a little more fun (and you’re a nicer person to be around).
I had SO much fun in the last few weeks measuring body fat on leaner people–I want the next round of tests to show more results. So without further ado, here is your workout:
After a 3-5 minute warm-up, do each of the following exercises for 45 seconds straight (or repetitions to fatigue), and then take 15 seconds to rest and transition to the next exercise. Complete as many rounds as you wish. As always, stretch afterwards.
Here you go:
Lunges in place
Jump squat (or a regular body weight squat for non-jumpers)
Horizontal row w/exercise tubing (see Perform Better catalog if you need a band)
Feel free to post a comment after you’ve done the workout (just trying to instill a little accountability!).
Hey, we could have a contest to see which boot camp scores the most “homework completed” posts!
In-home personal training clients, I’ll be waiting to hear your homework report at our next workout!
Have a great week!
Committed to your success,
